IF: Old Fashioned

I grew up hanging all of our laundry on huge clotheslines in our backyard. We didn't get a dryer until I was in my teens, and even then it was only used when the weather was bad.  I'm sure I silently loathed the chore of hanging up and getting in the clothes (especially when it was in a frenzy because it had started to rain!), but thinking back on it now, it seems pretty great. :)

What's Selling...

Whew...finally the sales have returned! I guess zazzle was doing some sort of testing in their marketplace last month that ended up affecting a lot of shopkeeper's sales in August.  From what I've heard, it just ended last week (thank goodness), and now sales are getting back to normal!  I was getting worried there for a while, thinking my run of good luck at online selling may be over. I'm very relieved to see so many sales (and the warm, fuzzy feeling that goes along with them) return in the last couple of days.  :)

News and such...

     Just a reminder; today is the last day for free shipping over at my shop. I'm bummed about this because I've been so busy lately that I haven't even been able to take advantage of it! Hope some of you can! 

     As for future promo's and codes, I'm going to start posting them under the "Promotions" tab up there at the top of the page. Last weekend I spent some time using blogger's new template designer thingy, and I realized I could add tabs... so I did.  :)   Instead of creating blog posts, I'll just update the Promotions page with the most current sales, etc.

     In other news, my work scedule has changed (for the worse), and I'm not getting home until much later than usual. That doesn't leave me with as much time for painting or blogging, so the blogs here may get even more infrequent than they were.  Hopefully this won't be permanent and I can get back to posting new designs really soon. :( 

For now, here's the last fully finished one called "A Tree Full of Wishes."

IF: Dessert

Here's my cupcake tree and my contribution to IF's theme - dessert.  I'm also working on a Halloween, dessert inspired tree right now. If I get it done by next Friday, I'll add another post! 

Sweetie Bird

Come to think of it, my very first bird design involved dessert... I saw a picture of this raspberry cake in a magazine. It looked really good, and since I couldn't cook it, I painted it instead. :)  I'd say that's worth posting, too. :)

I'll have what he's having...

I was having a fairly crappy day until I came across this video posted by a friend on facebook...

I'm always behind on knowing about the latest viral videos, so you may already have seen this.  It was new to me, and really made my day. It's kind of impossible to be upset when this guy is getting so much pleasure out of something as simple as a rainbow. Yeah, it's over the top, but it is a double rainbow...all the way.  ;)

Thanks for putting things into perspective, rainbow guy.

IF: Immovable

So I was thinking I wasn't going to have an entry this week to Illustration Friday's theme (immovable), but my cat proved me wrong. Today as I was trying to finish up sketching a few new paintings, my cat decided she was more important. I spent some time trying to fight off the cuteness, but who am I to disagree? She couldn't be moved. :)

As this is for Illustration Friday, I'll add this recent painting, inspired by the same demanding kitty.
